"Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. If their response does not increase your comfort, find another therapist. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender."

Despite outward signs of being successful – ‘having made it’ or ‘being the first in your family to (fill in the blank)’– you are suffering internally from imposter syndrome, self-worth, and acceptance (self or family). You are seeking relief from high levels of stress or anxiety, isolation, loneliness, depression, difficulty relating to others, strained relationships and relying on unhealthy coping mechanism to avoid or escape feeling this way.

"Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present. If you’ve noticed yourself having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change, it’s possible you’re responding from old, automatic survival mechanisms. While those instincts may have been helpful at one time, now they may be getting in the way, keeping you stuck in old patterns. Within the supportive and non-judgmental space of psychotherapy, healing from the emotional wounds of the past is possible."
